Hubs' Sinus Story

My husband suffers from pain and pressure above his nose and between his eyes. For a long time, we thought that he was suffering from migraine headache because that's what their family doctor told him then. Well, it actually didn't matter what his doctor told him because he never took any meds whenever he had the headache. He would simply lie down and rest or take a nap and the pain would be gone.

It was only a couple of years ago that the headaches became severe. Sometimes it's too bad that he would rather stay at home than play bowling with some friends. He tried downing a paracetamol but it didn't help him. He also didn't like going to clinics, so there was no way I can help him with the pain.

I tried researching online about what could possibly cause his headache and for some relief. And that's when I learned that he might not be actually suffering from migraine headache, but sinus headache. To confirm this, I had to ask my cousin who's a doctor to come over and see if she could check on my husband. Sure enough, hubs suffers from sinus and not migraine. That took us a long time to discover!

For relief, my cousin asked him to try SUDAFED® and it worked wonders for him. Even the nasal stuffiness that usually comes with the headache was gone when he took it.

If you are experiencing headache pain that worsens with movement, like bending over, turning your head or lying down with nasal stuffiness, nasal discharge, cough and sore throat and fatigue; you are most probably suffering from sinus headache and not migraine headache. It would be best for you to consult a doctor so he can give you proper medication.

By the way, SUDAFED® is launching a fun sweepstakes and you could be one of the 90 lucky winners to win $250 worth of gift cards. To join, please click here. For more information about the sweeps, you may want to watch this cool video. Have fun and don't forget that you can enter daily to win!

Review: Moderna Artisan Series Double Wall 12 oz. Beverage Glasses


I was very excited when the package from Ozeri arrived on my doorstep because I am one of the lucky ones to review their new product - the Moderna Artisan Series Double Wall 12 oz. Beverage Glasses.



Product Description

  • Set of 8 heat and shatter resistant borosilicate glasses that each holds 12 oz.
  • Stronger and more durable than common glass, each glass features two opposing mouth-blown dimples that allow for a natural and effortless grip. 
  • Patent-pending double wall design that suspends drinks within an inner wall, creating an engaging optical effect. 
  • Designed to keep your hands cool with hot drinks, and free of condensation with chilled beverages. Microwave and freezer safe. Ships in an elegant 4 color printed box with a 1 Year Warranty. 
  • Satisfaction Guaranteed.


My Thoughts

First off, I love the look and shape of the glasses. I received 8 beautiful pieces and each one of them were in perfect shape and condition. I'm used to buying glasses because with kids and clumsy adults around, they don't last very long in my household. It's true, and even the thickest ones get chipped from constant bumping. The Moderna Artisan drinking glasses were perfectly crafted.





These aren't just like ordinary glasses that break easily. I tried dropping one glass (well, I didn't want to do it because I really love the glasses, but I had to for review purposes) and it didn't break. Yes, not even a chip. Okay, I will admit that I cheated a little and did it in a rather gentle style, I dropped it from a not-so high position. Still, it fell and nothing happened. The feel is amazing as well. The dimples on the left and right side allows you to hold it with ease.

Pros

These glasses are so beautifully crafted, you'll have fun serving different beverages. There is an inner wall that makes the liquid look like they are suspended in mid air. Also, the indentations on the sides of the glass help prevent slips. They are safe to use in microwaves and freezers and they are designed to keep your hands cool when you put in something hot. And if you forgot to use coasters, you don't have to worry because the glasses don't leave condensation rings on wooden tables with cold drinks.

Cons

Zilch! I absolutely love these drinking glasses that I want to get the Moderna Artisan Series Double Wall 8 oz. Beverage Glasses.

Recommendations

Perfect for those who are tired of buying beverage glasses all the time. The Moderna Artisan Series Double Wall 12 oz. Beverage Glasses are classy and durable. And if you hurry, they are on sale right now at Amazon.

For more information about the product you can check the Ozeri website and for updates, you can like them on Facebook.

All opinions expressed here are 100% mine and was in no way influenced by the brand or anyone. All photos used in the review were taken by myself or family.

Did you know?



The yummy pineapple heals damaged tissues. Nibbling on 1 cup of the juicy fruit a day helps soothe sore muscles in as little as 10 days. The credit goes to enzymes in the fruit that break up fibrin - a tissue-irritating protein that builds up in damaged muscles. Choose fresh or frozen pineapple - canned won't offer the same benefits since the enzymes are destroyed when the fruit is heated.

Get more money for your practice

Because of the insurance lobby affecting legislation in the federal government, doctors have been squeezed to the point that they cannot actually help their patients without going through a great deal of bureaucracy. On top of this, the more that a doctor actually helps a patient, the less that doctor will actually be paid. Insurance companies are now legally able to limit the amount of money that they give a doctor for a procedure, no matter how vital that procedure may be to the actual health of the patient.

There is good news, however: The bureaucracy that rules the mainstream medical industry does not have to be the final roll call of your practice. There are doctors that have found their way out, and they are waiting on you to find them so that they can teach you the same methods.

These doctors have transformed their practices into cash generating operations through the incorporation of a weight loss program that is not subject to whims of the insurance companies or many of the regulations of the federal government. This practice delivers money directly into the pockets of the physicians and solutions directly into the minds and bodies of patients.

No doctor is able to make this switch alone – there are resources and networks available for you when you are ready to take your practice to the next level. You can find out about those resources and networks here. You can also find the people to contact in order to give yourself the best chance of success in your practice.

Imagine actually being able to help people again without having to worry about the amount of money that you will be paid for a procedure. Imagine never having to file the paperwork to an insurance company and fight with them just to receive the money that you deserve. Imagine not having to hire an employee specifically to deal with the change to an electronic medical records reporting format. These freedoms await you on the other side of your journey into a cash practice, and we have the resources available to you to help you in your transition.

Simple Gadgets For Exercise

People in western countries are serious about getting in shape and keeping extra weight off. The simplest way to stay fit and active is to walk on a daily basis. It is not necessary to engage in high intensity workouts at the local gym or fitness club. In good weather, a nice walk offers plenty of health benefits that can keep people in shape for life. To create an exercise routine that revolves around walking, a pedometer is needed. A pedometer is a simple gadget that tracks the distance that a person covers in a given amount of time. Additionally, these devices can also count the total number of steps taken per each walking session.

Modern pedometers have digital designs with large display screens that feature LED technology. As a person walks, he or she can receive real time information about the total distance covered in the current session. Additionally, these health and fitness gadgets can display other critical data such as calories burned, heart rate and pulse. In order to track the cardiovascular parameters, a special heart rate monitor may need to be synced with a simple pedometer. For example, a bracelet sensor is used to take the pulse and heart rate on the wrist. The pedometer can act as a receiver that displays the information that's collected by the sensor.

Pedometers are available in an array of different designs that are very convenient for holding and carrying. Some of these gadgets can be worn directly on the wrist just like a watch. Other pedometers can just be thrown into a pocket or purse and still work perfectly fine. Similarly, these compact and lightweight devices can be attached to a belt strap or arm strap just like an MP3 player. PedometersUSA.com is an example of an online store that sells a variety of pedometers for people of all ages and physical abilities.

Pedometers are very useful devices for busy professionals. For example, workers can bring along these devices on every walk during a lunch break. Employees can develop healthy habits by walking every day and keeping track of several important parameters. Some advanced pedometers have USB ports and internal memory that can be used to store data about a person's walking habit. Such information can be downloaded to a computer or even mobile phone for review and analysis. In a sense, pedometers allow people to create an exercise log.

5 Positive Health Benefits of Inversion Tables


Your back muscles and spine are extremely important to your physical health. This is also an area of the body that is highly prone to injury. Putting too much stress on the neck, back and shoulders can lead to chronic pain in the upper and lower back regions. In addition, the disc of the spine can become herniated, which is no picnic to live with. Many back pain sufferers have found relief by turning to inversion therapy.

Inversion therapy can be done at home through the use of an inversion table. Lie down on this clever machine and it allows you to securely hang upside down, which stretches out the spine and back muscles. There are several wonderful benefits that come from regular inversion sessions.



Reduces or Eliminates Pain

Pain in the back is not just a popular expression. For many it is a miserable reality that causes endless suffering. Acute back pain is very difficult to treat without therapy that is directed towards the back and spine. Inversion therapy uses the power of gravity to resolve a painful condition. By using gravity to stretch out those sore, tight muscles, you can alleviate pain and regain lost mobility.

Get Rid of Stress

After a stressful day, your muscles tend to tighten up and become stiff and inflexible. This can lead to pain in the neck and shoulders. Inversion helps your body get rid of this pent up tension by stretching out those core muscles. It is common to feel rejuvenated after a session on the table.

Realign Your Spine

Certain everyday activities can cause your spine to become slightly compressed. If you play sports, golf or workout a lot, this can be an issue. An uneven spine leads to other physical problems if not fixed. Regular inversion therapy gently puts your spine back into proper alignment.

Increase Flexibility

Loss of significant flexibility comes with aging and injuries. Inversion therapy is a great low-impact way of improving joints and muscle range of motion. The neat thing is that inversion is totally passive since you are simply lying flat on a table while upside down.

Improves Posture

Over time your posture can become increasingly poor due to slouching. Inversion is an easy way to straighten out the spine. You will sit, stand and walk better.

Modern inversion tables such as the Teeter Contour l5 provide soothing relief from back pain and strain.

The Very Best in Vampire Feature Films

Vampires have fascinated and terrified us for generations. The notion of a charming old count who seduces women only to feast on their blood has captured many peoples’ imaginations. While blood-sucking vampires may just be the stuff of legend, that doesn’t mean Hollywood hasn’t been eager to tap into our fascination and fears by creating some of the biggest box office successes around the Dracula myth. The legend has been reworked and revamped over the decades, but they all still share the horror of blood sucking seducers. Nowadays, the vampire myth is bigger than ever, drawing in millions of cinema goers. We look at three of the most popular vampire films of all time, and why the blood-sucking Count Dracula still continues to fascinate us after hundreds of years.

The Twilight Saga

‘Twilight’ proved just how popular the vampire myth can be. By reimagining blood sucking vampires not as old decaying counts hold up in their castles, but rather as young, good lucking teenagers dealing with all the awkwardness and hardships that teenagers typically deal with, the ‘Twilight’ saga drew in a whole new generation of vampire buffs. While sparkling, pale-faced teenage vampires looking for love may be derided by some (and the series has spawned many spoofs), the success of these films at the box office proves that the vampire legend can easily be readapted to appeal to anybody’s tastes.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula

This Francis Ford Coppola classic has all of the elements of a great vampire flick: curses, seduction, love, revenge, murder, and, of course, vials and vials of blood. Plus, the fact that it is led by an all-star cast, including Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins, and Keanu Reeves, doesn’t hurt. Perhaps the most faithful to the original Dracula myth, ‘Bram Stoker’s Dracula’ follows the bloodthirsty Vlad Dracula from Transylvania to London and back again, as he embarks on a campaign against his religion and society (all instigated by the suicide of his beloved wife). Necks get bitten, leading ladies get seduced, and the undead walk amongst regular society folks. Plus, it’s nice to see Dracula manage to get a bit of redemption by the end of the movie.

Interview with the Vampire

This modern take on the vampire legend capitalizes on the strange romantic draw vampires seem to have for us. Taking place over the span of two centuries in America, ‘Interview with the Vampire’ is about a New Orleans plantation owner, Louis, who has become tired of life after the death of his wife and child. A vampire offers Louis eternal life in exchange for becoming a vampire, but when Louis finds that he will have to start killing people in order to maintain his immortality, things get complicated. Another film with an all-star cast, including Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst, and Antonio Banderas, ‘Interview with the Vampire’ remains one of the most successful vampire movies to date and can be watched if you find local TV in your area that provides these services.

Vampires are pretty seductive, both for the people whose necks they bite and for cinema going audiences all over the world. Whether it is modern teenagers trying to find love or jaded old counts seeking revenge, the vampire story has continued to enchant and terrify us to the present day.

It was a Beautiful Wedding

While at the mall this afternoon with the whole family, we passed by an area where there was a wedding exhibit. I can't help myself but look at their gorgeous wedding collections. Everything looks different now and expensive.

Every woman dreams of a beautiful and memorable wedding. I had a perfect wedding 26 years ago and reminiscing that beautiful day always bring a smile. We didn't have a wedding planner. Back in those days wedding planners are not very popular. It was only me, my mom and my mom in law who planned everything.

Jusi fabric was used for my wedding gown. The Callado design was delicately hand-sewn by an old lady from Las Pinas. My gown was very simple, but it was elegant. I had the Blusher for a wedding veil, the sheer veil covered my face and the back looked like a big bow. The Maid of Honor, the bridesmaid and the flower girl also wore a Jusi gown. All the men, including my husband wore a Pina Barong Tagalog. The Barongs were also hand-sewn.

Mom and MIL chose Pomelo flowers, peach roses and Sampaguita for our wedding flowers. The Pomelo flowers were used for my bouquet while the peach roses and Sampaguita flowers were used to decorate the church and the reception. Thousands of roses and hundreds of thousands of Sampaguitas were used to embellish the church and the wedding venue. The flowers were so pretty that I remember the guests brought home the pots of flowers after the wedding.

Planning that wedding was not easy, especially that we didn't get help from the wedding experts, but the three of us were able to pull it off and I had an unforgettable wedding. And to think that we did all that in a span of three months.

Review: 8" Ozeri Green Earth Smooth Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan, 100-Percent PTFE and PFOA Free.


Yay, I got another ceramic pan from Ozeri! Last time, I reviewed the 12" Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan; this time, it's the 8" Ozeri Green Earth Smooth Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan, 100-Percent PTFE and PFOA Free.



Product Description

  • Unlike other ceramic cookware brands, the Ozeri pan utilizes an ultra-safe ceramic coating derived from nature which is 100% PTFE and PFOA free. 
  • Delivers unprecedented non-stick performance without releasing harmful fumes or toxins at high temperatures. 
  • Features a scratch-resistant 100 percent ceramic coating as found in nature (no heavy metals or chemicals) that is super easy to clean. 
  • Made out of durable heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals or harmful chemicals. 
  • Boasts a comfortable heat resistant Bakelight handle, and a magnetized induction stove safe base for rapid heat transfer.

My Opinion

I am totally loving these ceramic coated pans! It's the mini version of the 12" pan I got last time and it's perfect for frying smaller stuff. It's not that small though, because as you can see in the photo below, I can cook an egg and sausages all at the same time. I also love that I am now frying with less oil, so that means healthier meals for me and my family. Hubs and the kids love anything fried and I used to worry that they're loading up on fatty foods. With my green pans, I feel better that I am cooking with just a few drops of oil.




Pros

Ceramic pans are way better than non-stick pans because they don't release toxic fumes when exposed to high temperatures.

Cons

Just like the 12" Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan, I didn't find anything that I didn't like with the 8" Ozeri Green Earth Smooth Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan. In fact, I am thinking of purchasing the 10" pan to complete my collection.

Recommendation

Make the switch now if you haven't already. Ceramic pans are safer than the non-stick pans that we used to love. And if you act now, you can take advantage of the sale they are having now at Amazon. The regular price of the "8 pan is $79.99, but you can get it now for only $ 25.95.

Doodles on the Wall




Aww, kids! Can't wait for the time when our twins will learn to doodle on paper instead of our walls. No matter how much I try to teach them to write on a paper, they'd still sneak and draw a line or two on our wall. It's good though, that they are creative. They're just like their mom when she was their age. I'm sure when they are older they'd love to draw, make cards, print postcards and do a lot of art projects. I'm glad I kept all their mom's artworks, I'd love to show them all of it when they grow older.
